You really might want to take a look at Paul Gartside.

He has some really sweet looking dingy plans that everyone I know likes very much.

His plans, although I have not personally seen them, are supposed to be detailed in the extreme.

I have seen examples of them but not in person, nor a complete set.

Hi Rob,

You don’t say how much boat building experience you have.

Plans come in all sorts of styles to suit levels of expertise, some have full sized templates for anyone wary about lofting.

Below are some more boat designers you might like to check out.

There are also some free boat plans available on the net which can be downloaded.

However these will usually require very careful lofting before you even think of cutting out the finished parts.
